Internships at CUNY TV

CUNY TV, based at the CUNY Graduate Center, is the largest public university television station in the U.S., producing and broadcasting programming on public affairs, education, science, business, and independent media. The archive at CUNY TV manages the near three-decade production history of the station, a broadcast library, the Himan Brown Radio Archive, and audiovisual collections produced within the City University of New York. CUNY TV’s collections cover a variety of analog and digital audiovisual formats, including 1/4″ reel audio, analog and digital video tape, and archival and broadcast digital formats.

CUNY TV is seeking interns to participate in the collection management, preservation, and access activities of its audiovisual archives and broadcast library. This is an excellent opportunity for those interested in learning more about the preservation and management of audio and moving image formats. Interns will gain experience in processing collections, digitizing, and describing audiovisual materials and documents from the Himan Brown Radio Archive, digitizing legacy formats.

This internship would be appropriate for students studying archives and preservation and those who are interested in digital preservation.  Preferably candidates should have experience or interest in working with time-based media cataloging, audiovisual media handling, digitization projects, and some knowledge of metadata schemas (PBCore, Dublin Core).

This internship is for credit only. Prospective candidates must currently be enrolled in an accredited school majoring within a certificate or degree-seeking program or be associated with an accredited internship/mentorship program.
